And in Bolingbrook, IL this Meijer's parking lot supercharge just showed up on TMC and is fairly close to me. It is 50%+ done and not on supercharger.info yet. Looks like it is more than 50% done but was under the supercharger.info crowdsourced radar. Wonder how many other superchargers are in construction progress that are not even known about.
I think it's fair to say nowhere near enough to even approach Elon's claim that U.S. SCs would be doubled this year (340 extant on Jan. 1st), as all of 16 have opened so far, including El Paso and Arlington, TX today, making 3 so far this month. Building SCs in places like Victor, NY is all well and good, but I-10/20/30/40/80 remain unfinished, as do I-5/15/25/35/55/65/75 and many of the routes to national parks, and in many cases SCs in the appropriate locations are not even known to be permitted as we close in on the summer vacation season.
Right but we really have no clue on the pace because this is just crowd sourced and in my example it had to be going on for a few weeks and no one knew anything.
Tesla Supercharging network is unbelievable impressive compared to everything else. Put *one* or *two* chargers for chademo or ccs when Tesla's are putting in 8 ore more with the new standard I heard at a Tesla meetup today is 10 minimum.
Tesla is certainly ahead of everyone else as far as creating a QC network, but that doesn't mean they can perform miracles. There's often one or two stealth SCs unknown to supercharge.info that pop up each month, but the average pace hasn't been significantly altered by them.
Assuming that Tesla manages to complete another 4 U.S. SCs this month, that will give them 20 for the year. To reach Elon's claimed doubling (remember, 340 existing on 1/1/17) would require Tesla to complete an average of 40 U.S. SCs each month from May on, and IIRR they've never completed more than 16 in a single month, so to expect that they've got that many hidden away that none of the alert Tesla public knows about is (dare I say it) Ludicrous.
